    I am trying to think of a way to have the students keep track of their participation. Anyone have any ideas? :thanks

    Answering questions in class and groups, using math manipulatives.

    Hmmm....I would probably have reflection time afterwards. "Think about your participation: thumbs up for participating fully, thumb sideways for "could have participated more" etc. I am not sure how to self-measure so I am curious to see some replies on this post.

    For some reason the taste testing dogs popped into my head. If you're not familiar with it, kids were given a sheet that had a dog with a happy face, an "icky" face and everything in between to indicate their thought on a particular food. If you tracked the participation for the same class every day, you could have them circle what they thought (using smiley faces maybe). You could also have them write a comment if necessary.
